Canterbury Pride was held on 17 June and the new Labour MP Rosie Duffield spoke to the hundreds who came to support the event.

There was a real carnival atmosphere not just because it was Pride but as one person said: "It's like a weight of nasty politics is off my shoulders." The former MP, Tory Julian Brazier, was anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion and pro-hanging, and the town and its thousands of students had had enough of this out-of-touch man.

Rosie is a single mum and teaching assistant and spoke very passionately about her support for LGBT+ rights. People were yelling with support and many are absolutely elated. There is a clear mood for change!
